What’s to Love: James Tynion IV has already blown us away with his original series The Woods and
Memetic, and now he’s teaming up with Thrillbent co-writer Noah J. Yuenkel (The House in the Wall) and
artist Matt Fox (Long Walk to Valhalla) to bring us UFOlogy, a story about aliens in the Midwest. It’s
reminiscent of films like E.T. and Super 8, and TV shows like Twin Peaks and The X-Files.
What It Is: Becky Finch never wanted to be special. She just wanted to be a normal high school student
in the small, Midwestern town of Mukawgee. Malcolm Chamber wanted something more. A destiny. An
answer from the stars. When Becky is marked by an alien’s touch, she’ll stumble into a mystery she
never wanted. A mystery that almost ripped apart both their parents’ lives 12 years ago. She’ll need the
help of her eccentric young classmate, Malcolm, as she finds the power within herself to uncover the
truth.
